WEST HOLLYWOOD — Each year, West Hollywood’s world-famous Sunset Strip celebrates its rich musical history and influence with the Sunset Strip Music Festival (SSMF), a three-day event featuring dozens of bands performing at Key Club, The Roxy Theatre, Whisky A Go-Go, Viper Room, and House of Blues. But the biggest draw, by far, is the festival’s third day when the city closes off the four blocks between Doheny Drive and San Vicente Boulevard and a number of top-name acts converge to rock two main outdoor stages on Sunset Boulevard itself.

More than 17,000 fans packed the boulevard for the fourth annual street festival on Saturday, August 20 to catch performances from Bush, Public Enemy, Matt & Kim, Escape The Fate, The Dirty Heads, Cobra Starship, Black Veil Brides, She Wants Revenge, Tribal Seeds, and SSMF 2011 Elmer Valentine Award honorees Motley Crue who celebrated their 30th anniversary as the Strip’s native sons.

Swing House Hollywood and BIG Productions coordinated the technical requirements for the outdoor shows again this year, once again turning to North Hollywood’s US Audio and Lighting to supply concert sound systems for the event’s East and West Stages.

According to US Audio and Lighting Manager Brian Murray, the larger West Stage, located in front of Key Club, featured nine L-ACOUSTICS V-DOSC plus three dV-DOSC downfills per side. Low frequency reinforcement was delivered via 11 SB28 subs per side, and all systems were driven by a total of 18 LA8 amplified controllers.

The East Stage, just outside the Whiskey A Go-Go, flew four LA8-powered KUDO per side with a combined total of eight SB28 set up below in two cardioid stacks. Sidefills on each side of the stage were comprised of an ARCS cabinet atop an SB28, while two 115XT HiQ coaxial wedges and an SB28 provided drum monitoring. Furthermore, an impressive total of 14 self-powered 112P coaxial wedges were on hand for stage monitoring as required.

“As expected, the KUDO, V-DOSC and other systems all performed flawlessly at the festival again this year,” says Murray. “Our loudspeaker inventory is now 100 percent L-ACOUSTICS and we absolutely love them for their total reliability and amazing fidelity. With the LA8′s comprehensive limiting and EQ features, I never have to worry about blowing components or getting a bad sound, which I don’t think is even possible with L-ACOUSTICS because we can fly their cabinets without EQing them in a pinch and everything still sounds amazing. I can’t say enough good things about them.”
